Walk Through the Storm!

October 3, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

“And Peter answered him, ‘Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.’ He said, ‘Come.’ So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.”
—Matthew 14:28-29

As Hurricane Florence is soon to make landfall in the United States and super-typhoon is about to hit the Philippines, we are reminded of the awesome power of God's creation.  We must pray for those in the path of these storms, and I am reminded of the One who walked through them.  How do we walk on the water with Jesus? How do we walk through the storm?

Storms will come in life. Now by storm I don’t mean a physical storm, but the difficulty and danger and disasters that may come our way.

You’re having a good day, the sun is shining, and then the phone rings, and you’re in the middle of a storm. Or you find yourself facing a collapse in your career. You get a pink slip, a dismissal. Or your child gets a bad doctor’s report.

The fact is no one is immune. Christianity is not immunity from problems and trials and struggles and storms in our lives. Storms are inevitable. The good news is that what comes to pass doesn’t come to stay. We are able to learn how to have an unshakable, unsinkable faith in times like these.

When God is perfecting us, He actually allows the storms or sends the storm into our lives. Jesus knows when the storms hit us, and He uses these storms in our lives…turbulent times in our lives to maybe turn our lives upside down so that we can grow closer to Him. He uses these winds that blow against us in our lives as a way to drive us closer to Him.

He has authority over all the storms that assail us!
